Wilmington, NY

Wilmington, a few miles north of Lake Placid, offers everything that an outdoor-adventure lover could desire. This ranges from challenging ski slopes and hiking trails to family-fun parks and scenic highways.

Wilmington is home to Whiteface Mountain, the only Olympic ski area east of Colorado. When the snow melts, Whiteface’s gondola can whisk you to its summit, where you can enjoy a panoramic view of mountains, streams, and lakes. Or you can drive there on the Veterans' Memorial Highway.

Santa's Workshop, with its elves, music, live performances, and even reindeer, brings out the child in all of us. High Falls Gorge allows people of all ages to explore a wonderland of rushing water, steep cascades, and high cliffs.

"The Flume" is a completely natural waterfall-and-swimming-hole popular with both visitors and residents.

Wilmington's natural beauty is unsurpassed. The village sits above a wide, striking segment of the Ausable River's West Branch. Mountains are everywhere. The area is a fisherman’s paradise: all of the roads either follow streams, or cross them. Wilmington is unforgettable.
